I heart A CERTAIN SLANT OF LIGHT. Been meaning to go back and re-read, actually. Perhaps this is the month to do that!

I cheer the strength of characters in this lineup!

Liz: I'm trying to put together a roundtable for A Certain Slant of Light. If I do, would you be interested in participating? Let me know!

Such great books. I agree with LW, there are a lot of strong heroines in these titles.
